The 30-year-old also engages in “fat talk” with his fri

He said, “Different from women, guys my age or younger engage more in ‘mus

The statement also asked local governments to remove subsidies on purchases o
f new energy cars after a three-month grace period starting Tuesday. Instead, more funds will be used
to build infrastructure, including charging and hydrogen refueling facilities, and to facilitate relevant services.
